There is definitely a knack to traveling well. Follow these helpful hacks, and you will find yourself backpacking with ease.
The Perfect Pouch
Packing your clothes in itemized pouches helps you to be super organized, especially if traveling using a rucksack. If you organize your items into pouches, you wont need to rummage through everything you own to find something, you will know where it is. Put your makeup in one pouch, underwear and bikinis in another, t-shirts and shorts in one, and jeans and sweatshirts in another. This is the secret to happy traveling.
Buying mini toiletries will firstly give you a lot more room in your case, and extra travel weight. So buy little minis of everything, and if you run out you can buy once you are away. This way you can also put them in your hand luggage and allow for more room in your big bag or rucksack.
Always carry wipes and tissues with you, you just never know when you might need them. Especially if you are traveling to remote locations.
First Aid Kit
Always take a first aid kit with you. Pack your own little pouch of band-aids, insect repellent, antiseptic wipes and cream and head-ache pills. You never know when you will need these essentials and it is always good to have them on hand.
Always have a photocopy of your passport in your bag somewhere, in case you lose it or get it stolen and need your details. This might sound over-organized be we promise you it is worth it.
